Church of England Diocese of Durham Great Aycliffe

About Us

A modern church built 55 years ago and since beautifully enhanced by its stain glass windows which separately depict the seven sacraments, the saints of the parish, the Northern Saints, a beautiful round window depicting the Holy Spirit in the west end of the church, and finally the Millennium windows of the Aycliffe Angels, the railways and mining heritage of the area and the business park of the town.

A welcoming church fellowship which is open every day for quiet prayer and the Parish Office is open on Monday (9am - 1pm) and Thursday (9.30am - 11.20am)

Our Sunday Service is at 10:00am, we also have a Communion Service during the week on a Thursday at 9:30am and Morning Prayer from 8:30am Monday-Wednesday.

There are two halls (Unity and Fellowship) as well as a smaller lounge and a very welcoming entrance foyer. Our large kitchen is always busy cooking the produce from the kitchen garden as well as the many cakes that are baked and sold each week. Community activities include uniformed organisations, Mothers' Union, Women's Fellowship, Coffee mornings and social events.

A Family Church Service is held monthly on the 2nd Sunday and Messy Church Service is held every 3rd Saturday of the month. The Durham Food bank operates from St. Clare's Church Hall every Wednesday and Friday afternoon.  Please click on 'Our Website' to the right of here for further information.
